14 hours and counting

Porter has had a great week.  The doctors reworked Pharmacy's wean schedule for Porter and he is tolerating coming off the Adivan and Methadone much better.  Porter has been doing the Trach Collar Trials all week and yesterday he went 14 hours off the vent.  Today they are going to try 18 hours and if he does that successfully then 24 hours tomorrow. 

Porter just looks like an entirely new baby.  He no longer sweats when he sleeps or works out with PT and OT, his color is fantastic, his stamina is getting better, and he's still happy as ever.  He's looking forward to bustin out of this joint soon (and so are we)!  Oliver is ready to have his brother home so they can really start to get to know each other.
